A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, casting the Moon’s shadow on Earth. A solar eclipse can only happen during a New Moon. The Moon’s orbit is titled 5 degrees to Earth’s orbit around the Sun. You won’t want to miss the solar eclipse 2024.

Did you know that the Solar Eclipse 2024 is a long one, and the last eclipse in North America until 2045?  You don’t want to miss it!

The total solar eclipse of 2024 will begin its journey from Mexico and end in Canada. To me, it makes sense to include an RV adventure to Mexico with viewing the solar eclipse. Since Caravanas de Mexico is offering tours specifically to include the solar eclipse why not join them?

And what better way to explore this beautiful country than in a caravan with someone else looking after the routing, reservations, and all those little details that need taken care of?

Benefits of a Caravan Trip to Mexico

An RV caravan trip to Mexico offers a number of benefits that include:

  • Assistance with paperwork required for entering into Mexico that includes vehicle permits, a Tourist Visa and Mexican auto insurance.
  • Experienced Guides, wagon-masters, and tail gunners.
  • Ability to visit places you may never have access to without the tour company.
  • RV Park reservations are made for you.
  • Many extra tours, meals and some hotel stays depending on the caravan route
  • Local tours provided with bilingual professional local guides.
  • Experience another culture – the Mexican people are super friendly and welcoming
  • Leave the cold behind!

Is Mexico safe for RVers?

Experienced caravan companies avoid any trouble spots and believe that Mexico is very safe for RVs, especially in a group, offering more security.

Will we stay in RV Parks in Mexico?

Most tour companies arrange for their group to stay in full service RV parks when possible. At times, you may stay in a location with no services and do some dry camping.

How many RVs are in the Mexican Caravan for the Solar Eclipse 2024?

Every caravan company has their own limits but they usually range from 6 to 15 rigs in a group, making it manageable for everyone.

Do we have to travel every day?

No.  You won’t be traveling every day. Caravans are set up for their customers to relax and enjoy the journey. There will be days of beaches, festivals and local tours.  Most days of travel will be from 3 to 8 hours but will be kept as short as possible.
